    The selective corrosion existing at the seam weld of high frequency electric resistance welded pipes of carbon steel with low sulfur content in electrolyte solutions is revealed by localized. Corrosion has been observed in girth welds and seam welds in pipe and in welds between plates in ships, for many fusion welding processes. As described below, preferential weldment corrosion can be galvanically induced, or related to the microstructure associated with the HAZ and weld metal.

    Welded pipe manufacturing techniques have improved over the years. Perhaps the most important advancement has been the switch to high-frequency electric currents for welding. Prior to the s, low-frequency current was used. Weld seams produced from low-frequency ERW were more prone to corrosion and seam failure. Most welded pipe types. Welded pipe (pipe manufactured with a weld) is a tubular product made out of flat plates, known as skelp that are formed, bent and prepared for welding. The most popular process for large diameter pipe uses a longitudinal seam weld. Spiral welded pipe is an alternative process, spiral weld construction allows large diameter pipe to be produced from narrower plates or skelp.

    Welded pipe with filler material can be used in the manufacturing of long radius bends and elbow. Welded pipes are cheaper with compared to the seamless pipe and also Weak due to the weld. There are different welding methods used to weld the pipe.

Grooving corrosion is a phenomenon by which the weld seam of electric resistance welded (ERW) pipe is preferentially attacked in wet natural gas environments containing CO{sub 2}. The attack initiates as an aligned string of pits which grow and intersect, forming a round-bottomed groove of damage centered on the weld seam.

The methods were validated using a standard destructive test for assessing SSWC susceptibility. One method was based on measurement of the local potential difference between the seam weld and the adjacent base metal while the second was based on differences in the corrosion kinetics between the seam weld and the base metal.

Welded, and Induction Welded Pipe to Selective Seam Weld Corrosion,” Report to American Gas Association, NG Report No.Battelle, September Anti-corrosion steel base material including spiral,straight seam pipe,seamless pipe,etc.,are widely used in our long-distance water,petroleum,chemical, natural gas,heating,sewage treatment,water,bridges, steel,marine water piling pipeline engineering; 7).Advantages ① improve the life of the steel pipe.

ERW including high frequency welded steel pipe(HFW) and low frequency welded steel pipe(LFW).Over time, the welds of low frequency ERW pipe was found to be susceptible to selective seam corrosion,hook cracks,and inadequate bonding of the seams,so low frequency ERW is no longer used to manufacture high frequency process is still being used to manufacture pipe for use in new.

Corrosion: A Seamless steel pipe generally doesn’t show any sign of corrosion until and unless it is subjected to a highly corrosive environment, whereas the weld area in the welded tube is much more prone to corrosion attacks.

A welded area is considered to be in homogeneous, thus it exhibits a different malleability and less corrosion. Through this process of production of welded pipe fusion center will appear as a white line on both sides of the heat affected zone will produce fusion line extending from the middle toward the surface and the inner and outer metal flow lines.

Since ERW steel pipe is used as the base material using welding materials, so its properties of the weld and base metal properties have a greater.

The susceptibility of ERW pipe to grooving corrosion was recognized to be related to the chemical composition (particularly sulfur content) of the pipe and to the use of a postweld heat treatment. For ERW pipes made from plain carbon steels with high sulfur content of more than wt%, grooving corrosion has contributed to nonmetallic.

Susceptibility of modern ERW pipe to selected weld seam corrosion in wet environments: final report (Book) 1 edition published in in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide. Electric Resistance Welded Pipe. ERW (Electrical Resistance Welding) pipes are manufactured by cold forming of steel coil into a round cylindrical shape are used in various engineering purposes.

ERW steel pipe is formed by rolling plate and welding the seam. Electric Resistance Welded Pipe ERW/HFI Hall Longmore uses the high frequency induction heating and significantly decreases the weld line corrosion effect.

Prior to hydrostatic testing, pipes are sized to required in the pipe: the weld seam. ERW broch August 11. Electric resistance welding (ERW) is a welding process where metal parts in contact are permanently joined by heating them with an electric current, melting the metal at the joint.

Electric resistance welding is widely used, for example, in manufacture of steel pipe and in assembly of bodies for automobiles. ->The defects that can occur in ERW/HFI pipe are those associated with strip production, such as laminations and defects at the narrow weld line.

->Lack of fusion due to insufficient heat and pressure is the principal defect, although hook cracks can also form due to realignment of non metallic inclusions at the weld interface. Import ERW pipe, on the other hand, is harder and more brittle with: irregular grain patterns, a bump at the weld seam, and a weld seam with different metal properties that the rest of the pipe.

For contractors using standard pipe, the difference really is in the quality of pipe used. According to a survey, 70% prefer working with SureThread. The most useful weld nugget sample is taken in a transverse plane through the weld seam. reducing the ductility of the weld area.

If untempered martensite remains in the weld area, it causes corrosion because of stress in the area. Figure 3 This normal ERW tube and pipe weld geometry has the weld bead upset removed. Comprehensive Study to Understand Longitudinal ERW Seam Failures DTPHT Battelle iii September EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This report presents an evaluation of the database dealing with failures originating in electric resistance welds (ERW) and flash weld (FW) seam defects as quantified by Battelle’s archives.

The catastrophic burst of a piece of LS ERW pipe was attributed to weld defects and low toughness along the fusion line. The fracture initiated at an ERW weld defect on the pipe inner surface.

The microstructure was normal for quenched and tempered low alloy steel. Transverse mechanical properties across the ERW weld fusion line showed acceptable yield and tensile strengths but poor ductility.Earlier produced ERW piping was characterized in the ’s by its susceptibility to grooving corrosion along the weld seam.

These types of failures were also experienced by Saudi Aramco in water services such as water injection or fire water as shown in figures 3 and 4. In general, grooving corrosion was attributed to excessive.Types of Pipes and Tubular Goods There are six types of pipes and tubular goods.

Standard Pipe: There are three different types of standard metal pipes - welded (ERW Pipe), seamless pipe, and galvanized pipe.

They represent 10% of all tubular products. Line Pipe: Used primarily in Oil and Gas Applications. Line pipe includes ERW, FW, SAW and DSAW Pipe.
